Wolverine Wednesday: Trey and Derrick Get Guaranteed

Trey Burke and Derrick Walton Jr. both got some good news yesterday as they got their contracts guaranteed for the rest of the year on their respective NBA teams.

Trey is on the 76'ers and averaging 7.7 points per game, while playing 14 minutes a game.
Derrick is averaging just under 3 points per game, while playing 9 minutes per game.  Derrick will make $1.4M this season.

Rumors are that Duncan Robinson is going to particating in the 3 point contest during NBA's All Star Weekend.

Congratsulations to the former Wolverines on their success in the league!

  • Some names floating around to replace Partridge include: LA Rams Aubrey Pleasant who was a former grad assitant at Michigan and UK's Steve Clinksdale.  Pleasant is an up and coming defensive mind in the NFL and even interviewed for NFL DC's roles last season and Clinksdale has been recruiting Michigan very well.   

  • Seems the Chuck Filiaga transfers rumors were incorrect and he is staying.   I think he has a huge upside and now has the opportunity. 

  • Seems Nico is considering a move to the #1 jersey.  He is the #1 WR and should wear whatever number he wants.   

  • Matt Rhule is heading to the NFL from Baylor. Good luck to him in Carolina. 

  • Jace Howard will announce his college decision on the 20th between Michigan, Princeton, and Brown.   I hear Juan is very close to the family and Michigan has a good shot in this one.

Funny, today I was thinking coach JH should reach out to Brady Hoke and hire him as an assistant. He would be a great D line coach and great recruiter. Just saw Brady Hoke was hired as a SDSU new head coach. I will always root for coach Hoke!
